Flipster Trial – Animation

Until November 20, we are trialling Flipster as a reading platform for some of our subscriptions. Animation has been a title at the top of the wish-list for this kind of access.

Please have a look and let me know what you think – will this improve the user experience for students and faculty, and will it be used?

If you encounter CapU branded log-in, use your usual CapU credentials.
If you encounter a vendor branded log-in, use:

Password: EDSPreview2022!

The catch here is that the price may go from $116/year for print to $415/year for Flipster online access. We can afford it, if it will support the department and be used.

What other publications should we be considering subscribing to, if they’re available in this format?
